It's Not Too Late to Join the Games!

Because of the great publicity the Games has been given through some popular blogs, we've had a few people ask if it's too late to join them. Thomas, Kathryn, and I put our heads together about this and decided no, it's not too late!

We'll give everyone until 9:00 PM PDT tomorrow, August 10th to join the games, which includes 1) joining Facebook; 2) joining the Genea-Blogger Group at Facebook; 3) creating a post on your blog describing the categories you are "competing" in. E-mail me to let me know about your post.

Latecomers won't be added to the Opening Ceremonies post, but we'll highlight you on my blog. If you qualify by completing the appropriate tasks, you'll receive the appropriate medal(s).

We welcome all who wish to be a part of the Genea-Bloggers: you can join our group at any time! Remember, our description is: "For those who blog about genealogy or family history and those who are their devoted readers!"

Also, a gentle reminder that competition starting time is 12 Noon, PDT today, August 9th and ending time is 12 Noon, PDT on Saturday, August 23rd. A few of you got so excited about participating, you "jumped the gun." We'll forgive you!

I'm sorry, I'm one of the eager beavers. I thought the competition started yesterday and that I was gonna be a day behind because I had to go to work last night and wouldn't really get to start until today. :(

Don't worry about it, Ruth. No big deal. There were at least three others who did, too.

We're not going to be picky about this. Count your tallies for yesterday's work, or not, we don't care!

I never was good at telling time! I saw the 12 and thought that meant midnight Friday. Thanks for the forgiveness. I was born three weeks too soon and I guess I try to stay that far ahead!
